After Burner Climax Comes To Xbox Live, PlayStation Network In April

It's blue skies and barrel rolls for After Burner fans, as Sega puts a date and price on the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network release of arcade dogfighter After Burner Climax.

On April 21, After Burner Climax touches down on XBLA for 800 Microsoft Points ($10 USD, give or take). One day later, it does a fly by on PlayStation Network for exactly $9.99 USD. And then it's just missiles and explosions everywhere, old school fire and forget action amidst tears of nostalgic joy.

With three planes to choose from and 20 stages worth of flying, shooting and time-slowing Climax action, this is starting to sound like ten bucks well spent.
